Journey into Intimacy: A Study in the Song of Solomon embraces the Bible's most tender depiction of God's love for His people, revealed in this brief and evocative biblical love poem. In its own way, Christy Hill's study responds to the beloved's invitation: "Rise up, my love, my fair one, / And come away" (Song of Solomon 2:10). The study asks of God, revealed through the biblical text, the same thing the bride asks of her beloved: "Let me see your face, / Let me hear your voice; / For your voice is sweet, / And your face is lovely" (Song of Solomon 2:14).
Making its way through the Song of Solomon, Journey into Intimacy presents the book's passages and offers reflections and commentary on them over the course of six parts that correspond with the natural shifts in the biblical book. The author's approach rests upon listening to the Song of Solomon as an allegory that tells the story of the bride of Christ on earth as love lifts her out of fear and oppression and gives her new life with the King. On the other hand, Journey into Intimacy also tells the story of Christ, the bridegroom who seeks and woos His bride, revealing His heart for her.
Journey into Intimacy: A Study in the Song of Solomon ventures into the depths of God's love, where hearts that hunger may find a feast and searching hearts a home.
